Because of recent flooding and the number of shows that have been canceled the past several weeks, the Backwater Gamblers Water Ski Show Team will have additional shows at 6:30 p.m. today and Thursday. Those shows are in addition to the group's normally scheduled show on Wednesday, also at 6:30 p.m.

Shows are held at 5000 44th St., which is 44th Street and the Rock River, in Rock Island. For more information, call 309-786-8987, go online to or search for Backwater Gamblers on Facebook.
